Soilmates transform ugly avocados into the purest of cooking oils, chock-full of natural antioxidants, omegas, vitamins and unsaturated fats (the good kind!). Together, these vitamins and nutrients give you a beauty boost from within. But guess what? You can also use Healthy Oil in your beauty routine. Seriously. Take a seat: we’ll tell you how.
UGLYS WITH PURE POWER
Mountains of avocados – over one million a day, in fact – fail inspection at the port in Rotterdam and are rejected. Discarded. Trashed. Thrown out. For not being ‘pretty enough’. Yikes! Luckily, we rescue the uglys and turn them into Healthy Oil – 100% avocado oil. The result? A bottle full of benefits. Without additives and preservatives. Completely vegan. Straight outta nature. No interference necessary.
A BOOST FROM THE INSIDE
Soilmates’ Healthy Oil is ideal for cooking. No other natural oil can be used at such high temperatures without losing nutrients. Impressive, eh? It’s just the healthiest oil in town. It’s versatile, too: you can bake, wok, fry, and BBQ with it – the only limit in the kitchen is your imagination!
…AND A BOOST FROM THE OUTSIDE, TOO
Healthy Oil should feature on more than just the dinner menu – it’s worth including in your beauty routine, too. One oil, made from uglys, taking care of you from both the inside and the outside.
HERE ARE FOUR WAYS TO USE HEALTHY OIL TO FEEL – AND LOOK – LIKE THE DAZZLER YOU ARE:
Hair Mask – Locks need a little love? Make your own hair mask by blending one banana with one avocado. Stir in a tablespoon of Healthy Oil and a tablespoon of honey. Brush through your hair and let it sit for about 20 minutes before washing out. Go on and glow, baby – you know it’s going to be a good hair day, today.
Face Mask – Who doesn’t need to de-stress after a long day? There’s nothing a homemade face mask can’t cure. (And you can whip this one up in seconds.) Mash up one avocado, mix with a cup of plain yoghurt, and stir in a tablespoon of Healthy Oil. Apply to your face. (We highly recommend placing cucumber slices over the eyes for that extra pampered feeling.) Leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Hello, beautiful!
Makeup Remover – Removing makeup before bedtime is essential for a healthy and glowing skin. Found yourself on an unexpected overnight stay? Gone on a trip away and left your toiletries at home? Healthy Oil’s just the buddy to help you get out of a bind: just apply a few drops to a cotton ball and wipe gently. (Now you know why we’re always carrying a bottle in our bags.)
Scrub – Looking for that radiant skin? (Who isn’t!) Exfoliating could be the answer. Check out two of our favourite face scrub ideas below:
- Mix two tablespoons of Healthy Oil with one tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of fine sugar. Massage gently onto damp skin and rinse with warm water. Silky smooth.
- Mix one tablespoon of used coffee grounds with one tablespoon of Healthy Oil. A 100% upcycled scrub, sure to make your skin feel particularly perky.
In short, while Healthy Oil should take prime place in your kitchen pantry, it’s just as deserving of a spot in your bathroom cabinet. And don’t forget, with Healthy Oil, you’re not only taking care of yourself, but also the earth. Saving 30 rejected ‘ugly’ avos with every bottle. True beauty comes from within. Same goes for avocados.
Soilmates’ Healthy Oil is available at Albert Heijn, Picnic and on our own webshop for €7.49 per 500 ml.
